For someone who has access to royal jewels and other expensive accoutrement that come with being a member of a prominent family, Meghan Markle cherishes a piece of jewelry that she bought for herself before she even met Prince Harry.
As royal watchers wait with baited breath for an announcement on the sex of the couple’s first child, an old interview has been unearthed in which Markle talks about a significant piece of jewelry that belongs to her personal collection. One that she’s saving specifically for a daughter.
Back in 2015, pre Harry, Markle talked to Hello! about the gift she gave herself when her TV show, “Suits,” was renewed for a third season. Said Markle:
I’ve always coveted the Cartier French Tank watch. When I found out Suits had been picked up for our third season – which, at the time, felt like such a milestone – I totally splurged and bought the two-tone version. I had it engraved on the back, “To M.M. From M.M.” and I plan to give it to my daughter one day. That’s what makes pieces special, the connection you have to them.
At the very least, a Cartier Tank costs a few thousand dollars. Higher end styles can set you back as much as $8K. That’s one lucky little girl!
